An Adventure in Copenhagen: Assistens Kirkegard (with video)
by Jeannette Sorice -- December 11th, 2009
Here lies an individual.
I traveled over to Assistens Kirkegard to check out Kierkegaard’s final resting place and discovered that the Danish church must still have it in for him. Trying to find his grave is no small feat. Hans Christian Andersen is also buried here and the sign ratio for Andersen and Kierkegaard’s respective gravestones is about 8 to 1. However, after a bit of wandering in the cemetery I was able to find the Kierkegaard family plot.
The graveyard is a magical thoroughfare in the city where the lives of the dead mingle with the denizens of Copenhagen.
